orders the iranian embassy in london to close as the diplomatic rift after violent protesters stormed the british compound in toronto you can react to the siege by pulling on its own embassy staff from iran. and egypt claimed to be leading the polls in the country's first parliamentary election since a fall of hosni mubarak there's been a record turnout and official results are expected within hours. but we've got another summary of our main stories in about fifteen minutes from now in the meantime two years might sound like a long time but when you try to finish building an olympic city from scratch and the heat is certainly on the russian resort of sochi may still resemble a construction site but organizers of the twenty fourteen winter games there say everything will be ready in time to hold them to their word the president of the international olympic committee has just paid a visit a special interview next on r.t. .
and. there again the president of the international olympic committee it's so great to have you here with us in sochi and i know it's not your first time in the city and start your first time inspecting and i linked facility what is preferable to actually modernize existing facilities to a big city like in london thank over beijing build everything from scratch like in sochi the world we have no preference between you two would on the pipes of project what grounds you the quality of the game for the at least are we for the welfare of the athletes and then we have two options either we go back to something that has already organized the games have been referred to refurbish and we are graded. from referred to a part of your country would be the complex like the ones or three. vadra said
because i think the quality of the game for good at least comes first but if you've been expecting such a now how's it looking what have you seen so far so far very. good team and. we respect that all the deadlines we see you strong support of probably good government but also the corporate world and the russian federation is very supportive there is you begin to see where the population so we are now at the cost of a winter olympics in sochi it's actually estimated between twenty and thirty billion dollars which is ten times more than games and then called it from what you've seen is this cost justify it absolutely now you have to distinguish the operational cost from the investments by the government. the operational costs that is what it costs to organize the games for a period of a month he said two billion us dollars this is the same sum as vancouver
this is the same service to the notion of the operational cost do not or member. of your original cost are funded by local sponsorship by picket sales but also by support of the international olympic committee the organizing committee. makes a difference is the fact that in some countries you need to build from scratch everything this is the case in sochi be first this is a new sport resort in vancouver we had just to upgrade the existing winter sports is old but that makes a difference but you cannot count this cost as being done for during the games and the weeks of competition this is going to leave a great legacy to the country you will have in sochi the russian federation a state of the winter sports resort region something that did not exist before it will have an average rate of the of the airport that would benefit for the
population we would have new roads a new pros history a new sewage system so it's not just a game it is a city as a whole do you think that whatever is being built in sochi right now for there would winter olympics could also be used. as a venue for other massive international sports events you would have the formula one crowd create or you could stage regional events you can stage were championships and you will states who are championships and the winter sports are severely big games for many many i know that security is also among the top issues during the olympic games just how much of a challenge. in sochi compared to london for example you cannot compare to a country securities are always a paramount importance we have hardware in munich seventy two. the security has to be on top of the priorities and it is on top of it it is the work of the local
local authorities it is the work of government they only have the means to do for security and i trust completely the russian authorities in this respect for example when you choose a time you for a little cames teetotal into consideration the mentality of the people who are hosting i mean the locals for example and in sochi games. the games are not organized by the international olympic committee we supervise we advise we support financially but the whole i whole identity piece made by the local organizing committee to look at. the sale of games in athens this was the identity of coming back to these reefs and saying friend. you know the game. beijing identity was the most populous country in the world. will be the city that has invented modern sport because football and many other sports were invented in england so the identity would be something very local always so she would have its
own identity but if you think about it in your own words what makes sochi so special for i don't. have a lot of special things differently it will represent the winter aspect of your climate that your country of course in the summer is not the case but for sure it's been a twenty five foot snow and ice and winter i mean the even you history winter spring a major role in conflicts and wars sochi with definitely also the unique combination of beautiful see the black sea and the mountains you don't have that many times because it is close vicinity of fairly high mountains with petrol snow and the sea and that being so that's going to be unique so. unique. circumstances sparks of the nature of the search are. thanks yeah absolutely one other subject i know that you've admitted that illegal betting is one of the main threats to modern
sports i was wondering how can i you see prevented is that even in your power to do something about it. we can do a lot by monitoring the sports results we can do a lot and that's what we are doing we can do a lot by monitoring. the thing. we see and of noble profile of the i think for the kind of match then we can start to inquiry and we do this with governments because we need the support of government to crack down the street and some say that doping is even less. illegal that in which we agree nowadays. dangerous force or i think are betting up with them side by side i think there's not one of these more important than the others we have to fight do. we have to fight. bigger better just because we've been talking so much lately about in the combatting everyone's interested in what is it exactly i mean how hard is it
to track down these people what are they called illegal callers are they lonely criminals or is it like an organized crime group you have to perhaps you have to look at this. you have the organized crime whether we would really be criminal gangs very high bets support for assault and then they go and see the actually thought the coach or the trainer they might need to get the results of the match and this kind of you know generate a huge amount of money and all of that is now possible because of broadband internet because you need to communicate from one. country or one part of the rock or another this bad thing if really very sophisticated how big of a share of business isn't can you compare it to something like track trafficking and prostitution or it's not that purport. the f.b.i. has calculated that there was more than one hundred fifty million u.s.
dollars in illegal betting last year per year yes that's fifty. you can't open a newspaper nowadays we've got hearing about that as being a match fixing a country a country be hard for you see it is widespread throughout the world you know that long been pulling the kings will mark the end of your leadership i see what would you say is your successes greatest challenge. to save us my child and i mean you know definitely the child of us will be the quality of the games charges that will be to come play in the course of the complexity of the games not to make them to be to try for that we hope for. the challenge will be to five don't bring to fight the diva but i think that there is a role for something we've progressed. to make young kids move more because that is a lot of movement and many young kids. and from the t.v.
screen be. a p.c. or to feed your game on i pad or television and many confiscates are sitting too much end up moving the streets who are basically. other diseases like diabetes so we have to keep the young people moving and that's also my responsibility and they're one of my success and second president of the international olympic committee thank you for this interview my pleasure. and so much more curious. to see. one of the. people of the history of adopting. oh please limit slice in the smallest place.
